Historical city of Masouleh, located in Gilan province of Iran, was founded in the 10th century AD.
The stunning Architecture of the city is popularly known as "The yard of the building above is the roof of the building below"
I tried to hold fire once...
The more it danced with the wind,
I felt my body sway to its rhythm.
I couldn't imagine being in any other place
I tried to hold fire once
until I realized that fire held me
I was it's guiding force.
If you look close enough, you'll see it dancing in my eyes,
feel it in my touch,
even hear it in my voice... but don't
ever forget that fire consumes and cannot be contained
پیش ساز تو من از سحر سخن دم نزنم
که زبانی چو بیان تو ندارد سخنم
ره مگردان و نگه دار همین پرده ی راست
تا من از راز سپهرت گرهی باز کنم
صبر کن ای دل غم دیده که چون پیر حزین
عاقبت مژده ی نصرت رسد از پیرهنم
چه غریبانه تو با یاد وطن می نالی
من چه گویم که غریب است دلم در وطنم
شعر من با مدد ساز تو آوازی داشت
کی بود باز که شوری به چمن درفکنم
همه مرغان هم آواز پراکنده شدند
آه ازین باد بلاخیز که زد در چمنم
نی جدا زان لب و دندان چه نوایی دارد ؟
من ز بی هم نفسی ناله به دل می شکنم
بی تو آری غزل سایه ندارد لطفی
باز راهی بزن ای دوست که آهی بزنم
I grind small amounts of flour in this hand-cranked Victorio grain mill. I would grind more flour but the mill takes a while to churn out a large amount. (I’m dreaming of a @komo.bio mill.) On the plus side, it gives my arms a workout. @lehmanhardware carries a large cast iron hand-cranked grain mill that I have seen rigged up to a stationary bike 😍
I ground the flour in the jar on the right from the hard wheat berries in the jar to its left. I’ve also ground up other grains including rice, buckwheat and rye berries. Grinding up fresh flour is similar to grinding up your own coffee beans. They both taste fresh and delicious.
When you grind your own wheat, the flour contains the whole wheat kernel, or seed. Refined flours strip out the bran and germ (the seed’s embryo), both of which are rich in protein, vitamins and minerals. But the germ also contains oils that, once released upon grinding, will turn flour rancid quickly. Without the germ and its oils, flour becomes shelf stable—and profits increase. (Steel roller mills made shelf-stable flour possible in the late 1880s.) When I grind my flour up, I usually use it immediately, and if I won’t use it for a few days, I store it in the refrigerator. I’ll add a bit of this tonight for yet another apple crumble made from more apples my neighbor gave me.
When my boss (who does love me) first heard I grind some of my own wheat, she thought I had gone off the deep end. Then we went together to a brilliant @chefdanbarber talk here in Mountain View. (This was a few years ago.) At the end of the talk, when Barber took questions, one woman asked, “What do you recommend we do to get kids interested in cooking?” Barber told her to get her hands on a grain mill and start playing around with grinding up flour. My boss looked at me and I gave her a see-I-told-you-so nod 😉
I was so excited that I had a private-barn-party when I put on my new sweater that my friend Pat made for me! Pat Philbin, P-Squared-Knits, (@instapatgram on IG) knit up our Vermont Sock Yarn that I’d naturally dyed into this gorgeous sweater that fits me to a ’t!’ She used 3 skeins in our natural grey, with 3 contrast colors in our naturally dyed skeins in Jenn Steingass’ (@knit.love.wool on IG) “Engi” pattern. She packed the sweater and snuggly hat on a bed of flower petals, and included a bag of tea leaves for a nice cuppa on a cool day. What a friend, keeping me warm and stylish and wrapped in love! The sun is truly shining on me!
Thank you, thank you, thank you dear friend Pat. Thank you, my dear flocks, for growing the gorgeous fiber that helps us to make yarn, that helps us to make sweaters and hats and friends and fun times. Thank you, sweet flowers, for growing and making color for us to enjoy!
And note that pretty, tall friend in my barn doorway - She’s the tall-gal Sunflower that I’m measuring up to share on our IG LIVE today(Friday) at 6EDT. (Take a guess at her height over on our other post about our dye gardens. We have a great giveaway to go along with it… just a few more hours to get in on it.) Last, and of course not least, if you want any of those pretty colors of our naturally dyed yarns, there are a few over in our @Etsy shop, with more being added to my shop at the @vermontsheepandwoolfestival at the end of this month!
